What’s Catching You Fish?

Yes that's the one, @mtskibum16 SBS.
I do use the same material more or less. You just wind it forward a few wraps and brush it back. Perhaps Matt can give you some tips @mtskibum16.
Uh not really beyond that. I just adapted some methods from Gunnar Brammer. Check out his videos on YouTube. I think that method is from his jerk flies (search jerk jr maybe).
Edit: I see you found some clarification @NRC. Glad you like it and hope you have success with it!

I think the last fish I caught on a fly was a bull trout back in late December. He ate a Bull Buster unsurprisingly. Since then I have ditched the weighted flies and micro skagit heads for an all-out assault on winter steelhead on the long rod. I've had 2 grabs, nothing more. I think my mindset is right, though.... I get super excited about the days when something bumped my flies, and enjoy the process in general a ton.

With that being said, I'm looking at my and 7 weight and getting the streamer itch again. Operation: Winter Steelhead on a stripped bug? Might not be as ridiculous as it sounds.


It's all good.

I don't think it was this exact same fly in this particular Yakima RB, but multiple size & color variations of this fly were money on slow days last summer/fall. This bow was my buddy's fish on my tie - if you look close you can see the wing in his mouth. (I don't often take pics of my own fish...not that coordinated!)

This thing has gotten me multiple eats (all in January) and my January Tiger!
